Today Sky Greece announces via their website that they have ceased operations to and from Athens stranding countless passengers with no assistance what so ever. The message reads, “SkyGreece management regrets to announce that it must temporarily cease all operations…” What does SkyGreece expect passengers to do attempting to fly back from Greece at the peak of the peak season when there are absolutely no airline seats to be found? The airline if that is what you would like to call it goes on to say in their statement, “The Company expects to resume operations soon. Passengers should contact their travel agent to arrange for alternate travel and/or accommodations.” For the full statement click here. At this juncture they expect people to call their travel agent, buy a new ticket and hope that the company refunds them their money in the future…good luck!
We have learned that a few days ago the airline asked all of its staff at both sales offices and airport locations to not come to work with no explanation what so ever thus ceasing all communications with passengers. Their social media pages were abruptly taken down, their toll free number simply advised that flights have been cancelled and then disconnected the call with no further information. In addition one of the principles was only reachable by his facebook page and after responding to a reporter requests for information deactivated his account.
